So, I am looking for a cell phone plan and I recently found Republic Wireless and thought they had an amazing deal on their plans. I have a Moto G4 Plus and it says my Phone is capable for the Sim Kit and I checked the SKU number.
However when I enter my zip code in the coverage it says “Good News we got multiple phones optimized for coverage in your area” but directly under that it says “Bring your own phone is not supported for your area”
When I go to shop for phones it says that the MOTO G4 PLUS HAS coverage in my area which is the very phone I have, YET it is telling me I cannot bring my own phone or aka buy the sim card for this phone I already have???
I really really wanted to choose this phone service and I was reading that if I order a sim card it is a GSM sim card since I am using my own phone.
I was reading that T-mobile is the carrier for the GSM sim card.
I googled T-Mobile coverage map in my area and it says “Excellent” on T-mobiles website
So my question is
What is the deal? How can republic wireless GSM sim card be T-mobile and it is saying bring my own phone is not supported, yet when I go to T moblies website it says coverage is good in my area for T mobile???
My zip code is 15401
What is the problem???
I am going to choose a different carrier if I cannot use my own phone because the entire point of going with Republic Wireless was because I thought they had the best deal and that I would be able to choose one of their plans.
I do not want to buy another phone and I am not going to.
So is there no way I can get a plan based on the messages I got or what is up? I am just confused how it states bring my own phone is not supported when the phone SKU number is the exact number it says I need and T mobile coverage on their website says its good.
Any help would be appreciated
